Alcatraz, an icon of hopelessness and isolation.
A prison where a rich and satisfying life is locked out by 50’ tall barbwire-topped walls, an intricate fail-safe security system, and surrounded by the freezing cold waters of the San Francisco Bay.
The Scriptures declare that we are all prisoners of our brokenness.
Everyone is faced with a choice; are you going to serve a life sentence? Or, are you going receive God’s promise of freedom by following Jesus Christ? (Galatians 3:22 )
It’s not easy, but you can…
Swim to win!

Readers who are jaded and skeptical about the quality of Christian novels will find Tatlock’s fictional exploration of racial discrimination, hatred and the human heart a fine example of the progress being made in the category. It’s a memoir-like tale of Augusta Augie Schuler Callahan, an eight-year-old German-Irish girl growing up in California who, as the youngest of six in an abusive and alcoholic family, informally adopts Sunny Yamagata and her Japanese-American family as her own in the late 1930s. War soon separates Augie from her beloved friends, who are deported to an American internment camp for Japanese-Americans. After losing touch for 23 years, they meet again in Mississippi in the racially torn 1960s, where Sunny is working to establish voting rights for blacks. Injustice is a funny thing… live long enough and you’re going to get rained on, Sunny tells her friend, and as the story draws to a conclusion, they are challenged to make choices that reflect their own conflicts about race and forgiveness. Tatlock (A Room of My Own; A Place Called Morning) adeptly traces the girls’ journey of faith with a light and sometimes humorous touch. She does an excellent job juxtaposing the horrors of Americans in Japanese hands and Japanese-Americans in the hands of their countrymen. Tatlock employs flashbacks efficiently, and her rich descriptions and characterizations are unusually fresh and inventive. Other Christian novelists would do well to emulate this quality contribution.

Praise for So You Plan To Marry A Man
“I can’t tell you enough how many changes I have recently seen in my husband and our marriage, since starting to read these poems and praying…along with taking some of the advice and quieting my mouth when I need to.” – Kylie J., Mother and housewife
“Jean Oathout’s poems have personally touched and taught me. Thank you, Jean, for being obedient to God, and for sharing your blessing with me. I like the personal feeling. These poems brought tears to my eyes. Great advice. Wow. Did you write these for me? Ouch, back in the ‘refinery’ I go. I have much more respect for my husband now.” – Mary H., mother, housewife, and nurse
“I am glad to recommend Jean Oathout’s ministry of poetry. As you reflect on the message of these poems, you will encounter the Holy Spirit’s presence in fresh, new ways.” – Dennis King, pastor Owego (NY) Church of the Nazarene
“I was flabbergasted to open Jean Oathout’s volume and read these instructive devotional poems. What a variety of topics. What practical counsel. I hope these poems will bless many as they have impressed me.” – Bob Hostetler, speaker, and author of 27 books
“Most books of poetry are tiresome, with trite phrasing and no central theme. Jean Oathout’s work is a refreshing difference, with a clear, thematic devotional structure and wording that is original without being obscure. Best of all, she infuses her verses with strong biblical teaching, which makes for a rewarding devotional experience. Take a look — you’ll be hooked. – David E. Fessenden, Senior editor, CLC Publications, Author of Writing the Christian Nonfiction Book: Concept to Contract
